The second SAGES (Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic S- geons) manual was intended to be a companion piece for the successful ?rst SAGES manual, edited by Carol Scott-Connor, that was published more than 4 years ago. Originally, the goal was to concentrate on tersely covered or often ignored aspects of the preoperative preparation of the patient and the operating room as well as the postoperative care of patients undergoing minimally in- sive operations. It was also our intention to include a section for each procedure where several different port placement schemes would be presented and brie?y discussed. Unique to this manual, the impact of the patient’s body habitus (short or long, narrow or wide) on port placement is also taken into account for many of the procedures. Also unique are chapters devoted to hypothermia, port wound closure, and the management of subcutaneous emphysema and abdominal wall hemorrhage caused by trocars. Naturally, the surgeon tends to focus on the technical aspects of the pro- dure, such as the operative tasks to be carried out, the order of operation, and the position of the surgeon and assistant. However, it is critical that the surgeon be aware that the CO pneumoperitoneum, far more so than laparotomy, results 2 in multiple physiologic alterations that, if not compensated for by the anest- siologist and surgeon, may endanger the patient or prevent the laparoscopic c- pletion of the procedure.

This manual provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art review of this field, and will serve as a valuable resource for adult and pediatric surgeons at all stages of experience with interest in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques in children. This book will review the pediatric surgical disorders that are currently treatable with these techniques. After a basic summary of the disorder, the preoperative evaluation and preparation is presented. Each chapter focuses on a detailed discussion of the surgical procedure, inclusive of anesthesia, positioning, instrumentation, and materials. Emphasis is placed on technique and tips for particularly challenging aspects of the operation. A description of the expected postoperative course and common complications of each procedure follows. The outcomes literature to include any advances since the original outcomes and expected future advances for the diagnosis and procedure is presented. It provides a concise yet comprehensive summary of the current status of the field that will help guide patient management and stimulate investigative efforts. All chapters are written by experts in their fields and include the most up to date scientific and clinical information.

The much-anticipated revision of the second edition of The SAGES Manual: Fundamentals of Laparoscopy, Thoracoscopy, and GI Endoscopy, has been completely restructured, reorganized, and revised. The Manual has been split into two volumes for better portability. Volume I, Basic Laparoscopy and Endoscopy covers the fundamentals and procedures performed during surgical residency. Volume I will be the first volume used by students, residents, and allied healthcare professional trainees. Material has been added to these fundamentals and procedures that will also be of interest to experienced surgeons. Volume II, Advanced Laparoscopy and Endoscopy covers more advanced procedures, generally taught during fellowship. All of the sections have been reorganized with a critical eye to the needs of the modern minimal access surgeon. Two new editors have been added. Chapters have been revised by both new authors as well as many stalwart authors from previous editions. These portable handbooks cover all of the major laparoscopic and flexible endoscopic procedures in easy-to-read format. Indications, patient preparation, operative techniques, and strategies for avoiding and managing complications are included for the complete spectrum of both “gold standard” and emerging procedures in diagnostic and therapeutic laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, and endoscopy. The scope, detail, and quality of the contributions confirm and demonstrate the SAGES commitment to surgical education. This manual is sure to find a home in the pocket, locker or briefcase of all gastrointestinal endoscopic surgeons and residents.

Performing a surgical operation could be compared to na- gating inside the human body. Two essential requirements are necessary for a successful apprenticeship: ? A perfect understanding of the roadmap, the anatomy ? Regular training with expert surgeon teachers showing str- egies, tactics, manoeuvres, and gestures to make the journey safe, efficient and fast For decades this was the way taken by apprentice-surgeons and also by surgeons already in practice concerned about upd- ing their knowledge. For years their only travelling companions were books, drawings, and pictures. However, printed medium cannot satisfactorily and properly reproduce the movements of a manoeuvring surgeon. In open surgery, only the two first - sistants can precisely capture by direct vision what is happ- ing in the depth of the operating field. Therefore, the duration of apprenticeship is long and restricted to a small number of people per teacher. The introduction of movie cameras into the operating rooms improved the quality of surgical education. But filming in open surgery is not so easy. The cameraperson has to be well trained to catch good takes in the depth of a pit between the heads, shoulders, and fingers of the surgeon and assistants. Most of the time, those constraints disturb the op- ator’s manoeuvres, altering their pedagogical value. With the introduction of laparoscopic surgery (LS), using a video camera providing images in real time on a television screen, everything changed.
